Hello everyone! I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for helping us continue my Uncle’s fundraising efforts for #TeamRosie! We raised the most money out of all the returning teams.
On top of it, when our team received the award, Down in the Southland shared stories of Uncle Randy’s past fundraising efforts and announced that moving forward this award will now be called the “Randy Sassano Memorial Award”! His passion and legacy will live on!
Thank you to everyone who donated, shared and helped make this happen! It means the world to our family. My Uncle would be so proud!
I took this photo last year at my Uncle Randy’s birthday dinner. Little did we know it would be the last time we would all be together to celebrate with him. As you can see Rosie is front and center and he is smirking at her as my Aunt Mary holds up the cake as we all sang Happy Birthday to him. She always had a way to make him smile.
I share this photo with all of you because this Friday would’ve been Uncle Randy’s birthday and ironically enough we have moved into the 1st place spot for the most money raised! What a wonderfully timed milestone. This is all due to your support, shares, and donations! He would be so happy and proud of what we have accomplished so far and would be rooting for us to keep going until we reach our team goal!
If you have not donated yet please know that any amount is ok. This is not about who donates the most but about giving what you can. It all adds up and it all goes to the same wonderful cause.
If you have already donated please continue to share my fundraising link https://give.classy.org/nicatnight with your connections on social media an/or email. Your shares are what informs people what we are trying to accomplish. It’s free to share it and only takes a moment of your time. That moment could lead to wonderful things. Look what it’s done so far!
Thank you again to everyone who has helped us get to where we are right now! We could not have done it without you. My family is so grateful for all of your support.
As some of you may know, we lost my Uncle Randy unexpectedly this year. What you may or may not know is he was incredibly passionate about supporting Down in the Southland on behalf of his daughter Rosemary. A few years ago he started Team Rosie to help raise money for their Annual Fundraiser Walk.
This is the last thing he posted on Facebook before he passed away…
I am walking again this year to keep his legacy going strong for my cousin and to help raise money for this wonderful foundation he wholeheartedly believed in!
How can you help?

If you will be attending Texas Frightmare Weekend May 4th-6th make sure to look for the Stop The Stigma booth. I have donated a Penny Furter, Tim Curry split face portrait print to help raise money for mental illness awareness. One lucky person who donates money will receive it along with a little goodie bag that I threw together.
As you all know I had my own GoFundMe set up a few years ago when I was going through a major health crisis. If it weren’t for the generosity of others, I don’t know how my husband and I would have gotten through things both financially and mentally. I start my post off like this because I have been there and I know how hard it is to ask for help in a time of need. Which is why I am always trying to find ways to use my art to give back. That is why when I was recently contacted by my friend Stephanie over at Morbidly Beautiful about a benefit raffle to help a fellow horror artist who was badly burned and lost everything in a fire, I immediately jumped on board.
If you are not aware, and surprisingly as it may sound, the horror community is one of the most kind and generous communities you can be a part of. That is why I was not surprised when I heard I was 1 of 70 shops who have donated their handmade creations to help raise money to “Re-Animate The Horror Corner“! Stephanie and I both decided that my Yours Cruelly Elvira/Cassandra Peterson portrait was ideal for any horror fan and a print of that piece will be going to one of the lucky winners.
If you love horror this is the raffle for you. Not only are you able to win some really unique prizes but your money will go to helping a horror artist to be less stressed while she recovers health wise and also help her to get back to creating and doing what she loves.
